Next time you make cake from a mix, you should try my easy and delicious recipe. The finely chopped pears and syrup add sweet flavor and prevent the cake from drying out. And since there's no oil added to the batter, this tender fall-perfect cake is surprisingly low in fat. —Veronica Ross, Columbia Heights, Minnesota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 1, 2015

"Just a so-so dessert. I followed the directions precisely and what I got tasted mainly like white boxed cake mix. The pear taste was really undetectable. The only real perk of this dessert is the ease, but I would not make this again as there are so many good TOH pear desserts like gingerbread cobbler."

"I made this using fresh pears which are in season right now - it was good but i'll try it with the canned pears next time"

"SO easy to make with just a few ingredients but so pleasant with the flavor and soft texture. This is not so overly sweet, you feel like you're eating a candy bar. But is DOES taste like dessert! Someone who is feeling "full" after dinner can probably manage a slice of this--delightful!"
